We’ve gotten together with The Roleplaying Exchange and [Insert Quest Here] to create a living campaign setting for Red Markets, set in the great state of Minnesota. Our upcoming actual plays will be divided amongst the three podcasts (and any others that join in) with a drop-in/drop-out play structure.

Episodes will be up in the next few weeks, but until then you can listen to us create a post-Crash Midwest. You can also join in on the discussion on the recently created LifeLines Forum.

Actual Play: Fiasco – Innsmouthsburg

 

 

The sleepy little town of Innsmouth is under attack by a dark force, something that has plagued humanity for years, targeting the hungry and poor: gentrification. Artists, socialites, and tastemakers are flocking to the seaside village, flooding the street with fixie bicycles and artisan coffee shops. But little do these hipsters know, something older resides in Innsmouthsburg, and the call haunts the dreams of the long-time residents. Everyone has an agenda, and that can only lead to… a Fiasco.

 

Sean – Phillip Ward

Aaron – Gus West

Darth – Scylla Marsh

Chris – William Carter

Adam –  Lewis Ward

Actual Play: Slasher Flick – Miskatonic University Spring Break

 

It was supposed to be the perfect getaway. A group of Miskatonic University students travel to a small island off the coast of Rhode Island to throw a weekend long beach party in celebration of Spring Break. Celebrations quickly turn to horror when the partiers discover they are not alone. Will the students overcome what they’ve uncovered, or will the dark forces hidden within the island turn this into nothing more than a bloody Slasher Flick?
